First Grade Writing in Math: They can do it!
The focus of this work is on scaffolding beginning readers and writers to write down their math thinking. The stories are framed specifically to help writers sift through their thinking and problem-solving: it’s hard for beginners to know where to start! After working through several of these scaffolding frames, students will become more proficient with their thinking, reasoning, and sequencing, and become less reliant on a frame for their math writing.
* Solve addition and subtraction story problems with a winter theme
* work with numbers from 0-20
* Practice with four different math tools:
ten frames linking cubes quick sketches a 0-20 number line
* Write their math thinking/problem solving in a guided way with scaffolded frames
The activities in this packet integrate Common Core State Standards for Math (1.OA.A.1, 1.OA.C.61, 1.NBT.C.4), and CCSS-ELA standards for Writing, Speaking & Listening (W.1.2 & SL.1.5)
